Long Autumn Days
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Everyone!

It's that wonderful time of year again, when the seasons gently blend from Summer to Autumn! I love these shorter summer days, when the days are a little cooler and a light breeze is in the air. I also love these long Autumn days, when the warm sun creates long shadows and brilliant sunsets. Today, I used the Tall Sketch Daisies die and my alcohol inks on YUPO paper to create a card that reminds me of this time of year.

If you haven't tried it yet, using alcohol inks on YUPO paper is an amazing way to create gorgeous, vibrant color for your cards and lay-outs. There are many different techniques that you can use to spread and blend the alcohol ink on the synthetic paper. For this Autumn inspired card, I used a special dauber with a disposable cotton pad on the end to gently blend and smear the inks together until my card was completely covered in ink. You can use your dauber to create different effects, like streaks or swirls, or to soften dark edges for a smoother blend of color.

Once dry, the vibrant orange blend was the perfect backdrop for the Tall Sketch Daisies, cut in black and framed with the Pointed Rectangle Frames.
